Eyes on with the Optoma HD28HDR projector

A bit of HDR, a lot of brightness.

Optoma HD28HDR

Optoma's HD28HDR is a small, bright projector with an uncommon, for this price range, feature: HDR-compatibility.

Case

The HD28HDR has essentially the same case as Optoma's HD146X.

Mini-zoom

The 28HDR has a rather meager 1.1x zoom, and no lens shift.

Vents

Like most small projectors, it's a big part of the design to get the heat from the lamp out of the case as quickly as possible.

Topside buttons

In a pinch you can control the projector from the top buttons.

Inputs

Two HDMI inputs. Only one is HDMI 2.0 and capable of handling 4K60 and HDR, which is fine.

Feet

Only two of the three feet are adjustable, which is surprisingly common.

Remote

The remote is exceptionally bright, and has buttons for inputs not found on the 28HDR.
